It is a pleasure to welcome visitors through the doors, here at Wentworth Woodhouse, a house that’s been a central part of the community for many generations, through many different families.
We are enthused by the positive response of the general public & visitors to the recent house tours and excited by what the future will now hold.
Wentworth Woodhouse, one of the largest houses in Europe and two houses of totally different architectural styles built by The First Marquess of Rockingham between 1725 & 1750, the west front of the house in the baroque style & the east front in the later palladian style. The house was sold at the end of March 2017 for £7m following a 5 year campaign by SAVE and the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. The Preservation Trust, established by SAVE, will now embark on a major project to restore the house and open it to the public. After over three decades of involvement, Wentworth now joins the ranks of many great landmarks which SAVE has successfully campaigned for, including Bankside Power Station (now Tate Modern), Dumfries House in Ayrshire, the Welsh Streets in Liverpool, and Smithfield General Market.
